enabling transparent proxy cachin on ce565 with nortel routers.

Hi,

i am in a bit of a situation.

The customer has nortel routers which do not run WCCP on them.

I want to have transparent proxy caching to reduce load on proxy servers as well as save bandwith.

will a simple redirection of http traffic form the noretl routers to ce-565 do the trick.

i have configured ce-565 as an outgoing proxy server.

users have http browser pointing to the proxy server.

ce-565 sits between the proxy servers and the users.

any suggestion would be appreciated.

Regards,

Amit.

On the CE565 make sure you have

l4-switch enable

http proxy incoming

https proxy incoming

ftp proxy incoming

On the router just policy route the packets with a destination port of what is set in the browser to the caches interface

Hi lynchp,

thanks for the update.

I tried out a different setup.

i put the cache engine in the real i.p zone.

the clients are pointing their browser to the proxy server i.p. I am redirecting the proxy traffic

to the cache engine on port 8080.

customer inisisted on having this setup.

The caching is happening but it is around 20% if i see the show statistics http savings and there are a lot of misses also.

i have a query that if the customer wants to limit the GUI access of the Cache to a few i.ps since it is on the real-ip zone,will the trusted hosts command do the trick.

Yes you are correct about the trusted hosts command. The savings you are seeing will increase over time, it can take 5 days of normal traffic to get an accurate indication of savings
